VEGFESTUK BRISTOL IS THE BIGGEST VEGGIE EVENT IN EUROPE IN 2014

1

With over 20,000 people expected at this massive festival in the centre of Bristol. Admission is £3 before 5pm, and £5 after 5pm to see the headline acts.

All the food and produce on sale at the event is 100% plant-based, and the show sees over 140 stalls, specialist caterers, juice bars, talks, cookery demos, performance, comedy hours, live music, a kids area, a cinema, 2 stages, headline acts and a host of festival capers going on for the whole weekend. During the day the emphasis is on information, education, shopping, eating and kids' activities, and then in the evening attention turns to dancing, partying, eating and drinking.

The show represents a unique opportunity for businesses, charities, campaigners, organisations and individuals to touch base with tens of thousands of like-minded people; and with low admission fees, the show is set to be packed out. Partly thanks to the superb weather, 2013 saw around 20,000 visitors over 3 days, who were treated to an awesome mix of great food and info during the day, and terrific music at night from Happy Mondays, Peter Hook, Caravan Palace, the Abyssinians and others. Very encouraging stats too from feedback forms on the day – 1/3 of our visitors were omnivores, 1/3 were veggie and the other third vegan, and nearly 2 out of 3 people who were not vegan indicated a desire to shift their diet towards more plant-based options.
